Thinking Globally 1

This book was developed for teachers of students in years 1–8 and aims to foster an appreciation of New Zealand’s place in the economic world and its role as part of the global economy.

A possible social inquiry model is outlined for the two units of work described.

The information and activities provided in the book can be used to help students develop understandings about the ideas and issues covered in the Economic World strand of the social sciences curriculum, including an understanding of trade and the importance of exporting.

Please note this book was developed prior to the release of The New Zealand Curriculum. Please use only as a stimulus to develop units of work that align to the curriculum and meet the needs of students in your own classroom.
